DHAHRAN: Process control and industrial automation provider Yokogawa has launched its state-of-the-art technology manufacturing center at the King Salman Energy Park (SPARK) Digital Hub.
The 12,000 m2 facility will manufacture internationally bench-marked analyzer systems, transmitters and control systems panel assemblies to meet domestic demand as well as for export to GCC, Middle East & Africa. Projects within the Kingdom and the region will benefit from the facility through faster turnaround in shipment, availability of local support, and better costs.
The facility is equipped with a full suite of testing equipment which ensures that the highest level of quality is maintained throughout the manufacturing process.
As the first ever analyzer OEM investment in Saudi Arabia for analyzer system integration, the center will also provide localized analyzer system integration facilities to the Middle Eastern and African region.
The new facility will boost Yokogawa’s pressure and temperature transmitter manufacturing capacity in the Kingdom from 10,000 to 20,000 transmitters annually.
In addition to facilitating Saudi Arabia’s oil, gas and chemical production and export of high-end technologies to the rest of the world, the centre will contribute to Saudi Vision 2030 by promoting a knowledge-based economy and local value maximization.
